BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

A traffic stop turned into a major drug bust thanks to a new ordinance in Bainbridge.

Early Tuesday morning, Officers Timothy McCain and Ronald McMillian stopped James Guy, Jr.

Officers said he cut through the Burger King parking lot on Shotwell street to avoid a stop sign. 

The new "cutting corners" ordinance prohibits drivers from going through parking lots to avoid intersections.

"I never expected what we got it blew us both away. Immediately, like Officer McCain said, you could smell marijuana coming from the vehicle before we even got up to it," said McMillian.

Officers seized marijuana, cocaine and drug-related objects from Guy's car. 

Guy is in custody in the Decatur County jail.
